HORTICULTURE THERAPY

This evidence-based group promotes health, self-esteem, self-efficacy, and a sense of community and purpose. By taking responsibility for nurturing a plant’s growth from seed to bloom and finally harvested to table, clients develop the skills and confidence to care for both themselves, and the community, both physically and spiritually. Gardening gives clients a peaceful retreat that supports healing, allowing clients to bond with nature and unite spiritually both within and outside themselves. Strolling through these healing gardens, lush with thriving vegetation, gives clients and their families a constant visual metaphor of the benefits of their own self-care and personal growth. By connecting with nature, the mind and body begin to heal, reducing stress, easing emotional and physical pain, and finally bringing peace.
